And going there to experience the place would not cost you so much especially when you decide to travel cheap. But traveling cheap has its own cost. Here are the pros and cons when you decide to travel cheap to India:
1. When you are India, luxury is not always wise. That is why when you travel cheap you don't need to wear extravagant clothing. You don't need to invest on your clothing for a visit in the country. Simple clothes are enough for you to survive India. Be mindful of the culture. Make sure you respect it by wearing discreet clothing.
2. When you travel cheap to India, you can eat anywhere you can. Prices are relatively low in this country. Aside from this, you can try the real local taste of foods without spending much.
3. India could be dangerous to those who don't know how to mingle. And to mingle means to be simple. And to be simple means to travel cheap while carrying enough money for the day and carrying it without the use of the typical wallet you put on your pockets. Wander the streets in a way you don't have to show your fortune, and since you travel cheap, you don't have much to show off.
4. Since you don't have to carry much if you travel cheap, you don't have much to worry about. But still, never ever leave your things unattended. There is a great chance it will get lost.
